“John Crabbie was a true pioneer in the Scottish whisky industry. One of the oldest names in Scotch whisky with the business being founded in 1801 in Edinburgh. From the middle of the 19th century John Crabbie blended his own range of whiskies.
In addition to procuring large stocks of Scottish single malt whisky from some of the finest distilleries, he signed licences to produce his own whiskies at distilleries such as Balmanech and Benrinnes.
John Crabbie collaborated with Andrew Usher and William Sanderson to pioneer the ‘art’ of whisky blending and together they created North British distillery, where Crabbie was the founding Vice Chairman in 1885
Records show that Crabbie whisky was housed at Yardheads in Leith and this became the home of the original Crabbie distillery
In 2017 Halewood International acquired a site in Leith, close to the original John Crabbie location for a new whisky distillery. In Dec 2019 the new Bonnington Distillery was completed and became operational
The distillery has bespoke Ogee stills from Speyside Copper Works, a 10,500 litre wash still & 8,000 litre spirit still.
Annual capacity of the distillery is 500,000 Litres of Alcohol a year
On site are 2 x 28 tonne Grain Silos and within the distillery is a 2.5 tonne Mash Tun and 6 x 10,000 litre Washback's.
Water used comes from a borehole drilled 147m underneath the distillery
The unpeated spirit is reminiscent of a Highland style with custom made stills produce a gingery, fruity, and oily spirit which is built to interface well with both bourbon and sherry cask maturation
The peated spirit has a sweet smoky nose and flavour with underlying fruit and spice on the palate. The spirit is peated to 50ppm
